The PhD position I am applying for has extended its deadline (fully funded PhD at a German university). This post has already been extended 4 times, the first deadline was 30 July, then 31 August, then 31 October and now 30 November. I applied in October and I still have no reply (at least not knowing that I have been rejected).
What could be going on? Is it OK to ask about the status of my application?
The other positions offered in the same research project but in different departments already have someone.
